Sweet Sixteen!
« on: April 22, 2019, 09:31:13 AM »
My recipient just reminded me we’re coming up on Little Johnnie’s sweet sixteen. Hard to believe despite how full life has been since. Anybody else have that sense, that the days are more full, more vivid, n a clear before and after sense?

     I,m a little bit ahead of you at 17 years, but it definitely continues to have a very enriching effect in my life. I sometimes compare myself to a so-so baseball player who always looks back to the treasured memory of the one time I actually hit a grand-slam homer in the bottom of the ninth!
